Great from start to finish
Dr. Grachev performed my gallbladder removal surgery in November. He was very professional and thorough and even moved my appointment up a few weeks because I was in so much pain. The surgery was quick and minimally invasive, and I recovered quickly with no complications. If I ever need to have surgery again, I know who I’m calling. Highly recommend.

Dr. Grachev performed robotic hernia surgery on me this past June and I was up and mobile two days after with very little pain or discomfort.. Now almost one month out I am completely back to my normal routine and have completely healed from the surgery... I would highly recommend Dr. Grachev and his Staff who were professional and courteous throughout this process...

Dr Grachev and Lana are super nice and were so organized. It is so helpful to work with a small family practice and not lost in large system. The operation went smooth and after hernia surgery I was back running after two week and feel wonderful. Dr Grachev was clear and direct and knows his stuff!!

Dr. Grachev performed my gallbladder removal for me the day after I was admitted to the ER. He came to my room first thing the following day because it was so late by the time they discovered the issue. I told him I had just given birth the week before and I was alone due to COVID restrictions. He was very kind and explained my options. When I decided to remove it then instead of coming back, he told me he would get me in as soon as possible so, it would give me the best chance of going home same day. Not even an hour after he left to check the schedule were they coming to get me for surgery. I am forever grateful for that! And his staff was great at answering any follow up questions I had. I highly recommend Dr. Grachev.

Dr Grachev was the consummate professional in treating my inguinal hernia with robotic laparoscopic surgery. He provided me with excellent care and explained the process thoroughly and answered all questions. His office assistant, Lana, was very organized, efficient, and helped in providing materials and scheduling.

Dr Grachev performed robotic inguinal hernia surgery on me. I was walking and sleeping with very little discomfort. Compared to the traditional inguinal surgery I had on the other side 15 years ago this was a piece of cake. Other than exercise and heavy lifting I was able to perform most daily activities the day after surgery. Other than some ibuprofen I did not require any narcotic pain meds. Dr. Grachev is direct and to the point and answered all the questions I had. Lana the office assistant was very organized, kept in contact with me, and always available by phone. She provided me with educational material about the hernia and the surgery process. All appointments were on time. I would highly recommend Dr. Grachev.

Dr Grachev performed an inguinal hernia surgery with robotic assistance and it went excellently - I needed almost no narcotics and was up and walking within days. He is brief and to the point which is fine. His handout explained everything if you read it what to expect and prepare. His staff Lana was very good - Lana was competent, polite and caring. Appointment time was kept no waiting and overall I am grateful to have my life back!

I had a great experience with Dr. Grachev. There was no wait time and he was very thorough. He didn’t waste my time. He knows what he’s doing and on the day of my surgery I was completely comfortable knowing he was doing my surgery. I would recommend Dr Grachev to all my friends and family.

On Friday, November 22, Dr. Grachev removed my appendix using robotic surgery. I went home the same day. After a night or two of pain, I have put away the pain medications. Dr. Grachev explained the procedure well. He showed his care by seeking out my wife in the waiting room to tell her how the surgery went. Five stars are not enough.
